CastAndLoose.tumblr.com is an online collection of the worst, most offensive, real casting breakdowns the internet has to offer. CastAndLoose Live! brings those breakdowns to life with dramatic readings by stars of the stage and screen. 

Join us on Monday, July 17th, 2017, at 7:00 PM for whitewashing, exoticism, invisibility and everything these breakdowns have to say (or not say) about Asian characters and performers. Plus the world premiere of short plays and original music written by writers from the Ma-Yi Theater Company Writer’s Lab, in response to the breakdowns.  Tickets, available HERE,  $20

Contributing Ma-Yi Lab playwrights include Dustin ChinnNaveen ChoudhuryMrinalini KamathMike Lew & Timothy Huang, Diana OhDeepa PurohitNandita Shenoy, and Lloyd Suh.
